Johnny Marr at Irving Plaza (October 15, 2018)

Johnny Marr is touring in support of his latest solo album Call the Comet, which he released back in June. He was here earlier this year for a performance at The Gramercy Theatre and returned for a pair of New York Dates, including both Irving Plaza and Warsaw.

We caught his performance at Irving Plaza on October 15, which featured a set full of his new solo material, as well as a flurry of The Smiths classics, such as “Bigmouth Strikes Again,” “The Headmaster Ritual,” “How Soon Is Now?,” “There Is a Light That Never Goes Out” and “Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want,” the latter which Marr brought out Broken Social Scene’s Kevin Drew out to join him for.

There was a great postive buzz in the room from start to finish, as it was a real treat to get to see a guitar legend like Marr play so many great songs in a tiny room.
